Since when I played Fallout III for the first time I have always wanted my terminal to look like those old jittery CRT screens that you loved in the game. Sadly there was nothing like that on Linux… Till I decided to make one myself!
In the last six months I dedicated some of my spare time to create a terminal emulator which had to look that way, but also had to be customizable and reasonably lightweight. Now the project is near completion I want to share with everyone the result!
The application is written using QtQuick 5.2 and uses as engine the Konsole QML port made by Canonical (https://code.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-terminal-dev/ubuntu-terminal-app/plugin).
If you are a graphical designer and you want to help the project feel free to contact me. I’m quite bad with gimp and I would be really glad if someone created a couple of frames and a good icon for the terminal.
Source code, build and install instructions (for Ubuntu 14.04 and Arch) are available here: https://github.com/Swordifish90/cool-old-term
Test it and let me know what you think… Cheers!
